REMOVEFILTERS including more records than intended

I'm sure this is a basic question that I just haven't found the right Google search terms for. I have some dental data where I am trying to include patients treated on a specific day, but summarize all procedures regardless of date just for those patients. If I create a measure using CALCULATE that includes REMOVEFILTERS for the date column, it is calculating the correct number of procedures for each patient (e.g. placing the measure in a table where it is summarizing for each patient), but when placing this measure on a card it is including all procedures for all patients. It makes sense to me why this would happen, but I can't think of a solution. Here is is the formula:


Cavities Needing Filled = CALCULATE(COUNT('Data'[PROC_LOGIDDB]), Data[ADACODE] >= "D2140" && Data[ADACODE] <= "D3999", Data[CHART_STATUS] >= 105 && Data[CHART_STATUS] <= 107, REMOVEFILTERS(Data[PLDATE]))

Hi  @gssffh  ,


Do the suggestions from engineers make sense? If so, kindly mark the proper reply as a solution to help others having the similar issue and close the case. If not, let me know and I'll try to help you further.


Best regards


Sorry @v-xicai, but it is still not working. It only gave returned a value of 1 for a single patient. I also tried

Cavities Needing Filled Test =
COUNT('Data'[PROC_LOGIDDB]), Data[ADACODE] >= "D2140" && Data[ADACODE] <= "D3999" || Data[ADACODE] = "RCTREF", Data[CHART_STATUS] >= 105 && Data[CHART_STATUS] <= 107,
However, it gives me the same result as my original DAX statement.

Hi @gssffh ,


From the article, we know that REMOVEFILTERS function is identical to the ALL function, which will take effect of all selections for Data[PLDATE].


You may change the formula like DAX below.



Cavities Needing Filled =
IF (
        COUNT ( 'Data'[PROC_LOGIDDB] ),
        FILTER (
            Data[ADACODE] >= "D2140"
                && Data[ADACODE] <= "D3999"
                && Data[CHART_STATUS] >= 105
                && Data[CHART_STATUS] <= 107

You said your looking by specific date, are you using a date filter?

If so maybe replacing REMOVEFILTERS() with ALLSELECTED().



Yes, I am using a date slicer on PLDATE and allowing only one date at a time to be selected. I tried replacing REMOVEFILTERS with ALLSELECTED and now it only returns a quantity of 1 for a single patient.
